Chilling, eerie, mysterious, and suspenseful are all great adjectives to describe the latest trailer for the film Gone Girl.
20th Century Fox released the first official teaser trailer for the Ben Affleck whodunit back in April. Over the holiday weekend, eager moviegoers got a look at four different very creepy new posters for the film. Today, we got to see the latest trailer.
Gone Girl, which was helmed by auteur director David Fincher, has a similar look to one of his earlier films, the neo-noir Se7en, which was also a murder mystery. The trailer also features the eerie mood music of Trent Reznor, who won an Academy Award for Best Original Score for his work on another Fincher film, The Social Network. We are also introduced to a possible second suspect (or perhaps just a red herring) in Amy Dunne's disappearance, Neil Patrick Harris who plays the role of Desi Collings.
In the trailer, viewers are given reasons why Ben Affleck's character Nick Dunne would kill his wife. Amy even wrote in her diary before her disappearance that she was scared that he would kill her. However, we also see Nick convincingly deny the allegations. And as the media circus builds around his wife's disappearance, Nick is forced to do a television interview to get his side of the story out there. The interviewer (played by Sela Ward) even calls Nick "the most hated man in America."
Did Nick kill his wife or didn't he? The trailer also gives us a good look at other key cast members in the film including Tyler Perry, Casey Wilson, and Patrick Fugit. The clip keeps the suspense at a high point without revealing any key information.

Gone Girl does not open in theaters until October 3. The film is based on Gillian Flynn's enormously popular 2012 novel of the same name. The book was #1 on the New York Times Hardcover Fiction Bestseller list for eight weeks and also spent 26 weeks on National Public Radio's hardcover fiction bestseller list.
